In the framework of cytogenetic studies of rare and threatened plant species of the Catalan Countries and surrounding territories, a karyological study of some taxa-three populations of Delphinium bolosii and the only known one of D. mansanetianum (Ranunculaceae), one of Hesperis laciniata subsp. laciniata (Brassicaceae), and one of Silene neglecta...

Wars and military activities have severe impacts on humans and on biodiversity, which are briefly summarized. Some side effects, although not ethically acceptable as principles, produced, however, some opportunities that have ultimately resulted in actions beneficial for plant conservation. A short review of case studies from all over the world and...

TÍTOL: Beneficis (o avantatges) de l’estratègia BYOD en l’avaluació formativa Les estratègies conegudes com a BYOD (acrònim anglès de “porta el teu propi dispositiu”) són cada vegada més freqüents en ambients universitaris com a eina de suport tecnològic. En aquest marc, el BYOD mostra moltes possibilitats per realitzar proves de control autoavalua...

Les estratègies conegudes com a BYOD (acrònim anglès de “porta el teu propi dispositiu”) són cada vegada més freqüents en ambients universitaris com a eina de suport tecnològic. En aquest marc, el BYOD mostra moltes possibilitats per realitzar proves de control autoavaluatives directament a l’espai classe i assegurar-se de la lectura efectiva dels...

A new version of the earlier chromosome database of tribe Delphinieae is presented (v. 2.0, updated 23/4/2016 and available online at http://hdl.handle.net/2445/98702), after an accurate extensive literature and Internet survey, by adding the chromosome counts for the genera Aconitum L. [including Gymnaconitum (Stapf) Wei Wang & Z. D. Chen], Delphi...

The breeding system of 30 populations belonging to 20 species of Aconitum, Delphinium and Consolida (Delphinieae, Ranunculaceae) in the western Mediterranean area was studied and its relation with life-span and systematic position is discussed. To assess the breeding system we measured seed set in response to different pollination treatments. We pe...

... These evolutionary processes suggest that the inactivation of two plastid genes is favored after nuclear gene activation. It is well known that polyploidization and hybridization contribute to Aconitum species diversity [18][19][20] . Our findings raise fundamental questions about the fates of transferred genes in a polyploid plant. ...
... The karyotype consists of two pairs of large meta-to submeta- centric chromosomes, one pair with satellites, and six pairs of smaller subtelocentric chromosomes (Fig. 2G). This corresponds with the karyotypes given for C. ajacis by Kurita (1955, named as Delphinium ajacis L.), Trifonova (1973, named as C. ambigua (L.) Ball & Heywood), Blanché & al. (1987) and Simon & al. (1995). Similar karyotypes are indicated for other species of Consolida viz. ...
... Some studies have shown that the breeding system of Delphinium is facultative xenogamy or obligate outcrossing, accompanying with partly self-compatibility requiring pollinators (Price and Waser, 1979;Williams et al., 2001;Zhang et al., 2014). Self-incompatibility (0-50%) and autogamy (1-90%) in different degrees among different species in Delphinium have been reported (Macior, 1975;Varney, 1979;Powell and Jones, 1983;Bosch et al., 2001). To our knowledge, both of the studied species are selfing; however, no previous study concerned the cross-compatibility in the species of D. yunnanense and D. elatum. ...
... In contrast to its pollen, A. napellus nectar has a low concentration of alkaloids and should be suitable for a large range of foragers 4,44 . Insect species mainly visited A. napellus for nectar 12,24 . Moreover, several individuals from species considered as usual robbers were observed legitimately visiting flowers. ...
... In continuation of our studies on Turkish Consolida species [1], we report on the isolation and structure determination of five new hetisine-type diterpenoid alkaloids, 11,13-O-diacetyl-9-deoxyglanduline (1), 13- O-acetyl-9-deoxyglanduline (2), 14-O-acetyl-9-deoxy- glanduline (3), 13-O-acetylglanduline (4) and glanduline (5), isolated from Consolida glandulosa (Boiss. et Huet) Bornm., syn. ...
